Worst 25th Anniversary Trip
Balcony was fantastic - although faucet leaked & we had to leave towels wrapped around it the entire trip. Shower did not drain.

Cabin L310
AVOID THIS CABIN. It is just below the smoking area on deck 16. There is noise from chairs being drug around at all hours of the day - from 5:00 am. to midnight.

Cabin C735
The stateroom was clean and comfortable. The hanging television rattled quite a bit when sailing, and I think it is because of the location of the room. As it is way in the back of the ship, there is some vibration that I have not noticed on any other cruises.

Cabin 1408 ?
Cabin OK, but NO clock. Had to wake up, and look at my watch. Typical ship TV (not great). Otherwise, about what you expect.

Cabin R311
Cabin was smaller than on other lines, but very workable. Upper decks look down on lower balconies if that bothers you. We were on deck 14 so we looked down on the others. We were one deck below Lido for pool and buffet, etc. No noise from above and very quick to go grab a bite or sit by the pool.

Cabin C310
Not My Favorite IndiTravler
Hopefully this ship is first in line for the new beds. These beds were really lumpy. This was my first time with the extra large balcony of the caribe deck. It really makes the cabin feel larger, but I didn't use it as much as I expected in the cooler than expected California winter.

Cabin R329
Cabin was an average cabin.........however being directly below the LIDO deck, we were subjected to constant noise at night and EARLY EARLY morning hours with passengers walking around, running around, chaise lounges, chairs and whatever else was being dragged around on that deck - there was virtually no quiet time. DONT BOOK A CABIN DIRECTLY BELOW THE LIDO DECK if you want quiet time, as you wont get it.

Cabin R259
We were on Deck 14, front of the ship on the right hand side (looking forward) and had a nice Balcony room (R259). We were just off of the elevators which was a great location, and had a completely unobstructed view. We were high enough up that we could look out over other balconies but no one could look onto ours. Plenty of closet space, but not a lot of drawer space. Bathroom/shower a bit cramped, but overall it was a great room and we were very happy with it and its location! For the ports that we went to, this was the water side of the ship, not the port side of the ship which didn't allow us the opportunity to see the ports as we came into them .... but we loved just looking at and watching the water so, we really didn't care either way.

Cabin R730
R730 Smaller than usual for a balcony, but adequate for 2 people, would not have been for 3. Great location to reach buffet dining and pool areas. It is on deck 14 and aft near a small adult only pool. Balcony was covered with 2 comfortable chairs. Closet was large and formed a dressing area near the bathroom and has a large mirror on the wall. Drawer space was small but there were ample hangers. Great views on port side of ship.

Cabin A608
Clean, but carpet fading and mattresses sagging. Good view from balcony. Typical size for balcony stateroom on cruise ship (i.e. a bit cramped).

Cabin 247
Cabins 239, 243, 247 forward starboard had small bathrooms, good storage, balcony, and were quiet.

Cabin R505
Riviera deck starboard side. Many of the Riviera balconies in this class of ship (like Ruby) are underneath the outer walkways around the pools and aft buffet dining areas of the Lido deck, but this particular block on Crown Princess is positioned underneath a bank of forward Lido cabins, and so we were free of the thumping of little feet at 5:00 AM on their way to early breakfast or from a late night bar experience. The head of the bed is on the forward wall and the balcony door sits to the right of the bed if you're facing forward. The stateroom itself is the same as the rest of its siblings: bed, desk, minibar with wide-screen LCD TV on top, good-sized closet with more hangers than we could use, an 18" wide or so floor-to-ceiling storage unit with safe. The bathroom features the standard mini-shower -- hey, at least you can't fall down in there -- high-suction ear-popping toilet, sink, and mini shelves. Balcony view is unobstructed with a mini-suite double-balcony abutting on the forward side.

Cabin A322
We thought our cabin was a great size. No concerns with closet space, or bathroom. We each had two small drawers (beside the bed) for our personnel items (socks and underwear). We could hear people talking in the hall and cabin doors were allowed to close on their own and they slammed. Light comes thru from around and below the cabin door and found our night light not necessary.

Cabin A222
Great Itinerary curtdesilets
Great regular balcony cabin. Forward end of ship so long walk to dining. Convenient to fitness area, spa, theater and casino however. Is high and in front so was worried about movement on "high sea" days. Was not too bad as this ship had great stabilizers. Cabins were thoroughly cleaned, but since our cabin steward had 19 cabins without a helper, it often took hours for the room to be made up. Shower and bathroom is too small. Open closet is too big. Could have designed it better. Stateroom itself had plenty of space to move around and eat in the room. Bed was a bit firm. Pillows were a bit soft. Order a bathrobe through your steward.

Cabin A304
A304 Handicap Accessible - we did a paid upgrade at the last minute to get this large cabin. Balcony was much longer than regular BC cabin. Bathroom space and cabin space had room for a wheelchair to turn around. Bathroom had limited shelf & counter space. There were 8 draws for storage, plus the usual shelves in a closest and double door closet. It was close to the elevators (with earplugs) noise was minimal. Heard cabin steward's cart each morning, but I was getting up early anyway.

Cabin r235
We stayed in R235, forward and high up. There was a chemical smell that is hard to describe in the hallway around R235. I complained about it to several staff, but I don't think anything was done about it because the smell stays the same for the entire cruise. I walked all over the ship and it smells only in front of our cabin. I have no idea what it was, but eventually decided to ignore it. The head in our cabin occasionally would emit this typical sewage odor. I didn't complain about this because this is pretty common in boats and ships. My mattress was clearly sagging in the middle and it was lumpy. The pillows were a little tired also. After several complaints they finally replaced my mattress with a similar one after two days. At least they tried, but I guess you are just not going to get a pillow-topped mattress with their budget. They upgraded our cabin from an outside window to this balcony cabin which we are very grateful. Talking to other pax, apparently they made several upgrades free of charge. Our balcony is small, but very pleasant and it makes you feel you are at sea. I heard many people complain about the motion of the ship. For the first two days, it was calm. The rest of the trip was more boisterous. Perhaps a lower and more centered cabin would be more steady. We were joking that the folks from Japan would have a nightmare in this cabin because at night it feels like little aftershocks. I am prone to seasickness, but for some reason the motion didn't bother me. My son complained a little of seasickness, but refused to take Dramamine.

Cabin A311
We really liked our cabin. Nice location and quiet and not too far from the stairs or lifts. Shower is very small - I think all the standard balcony cabins are the same.

Cabin a634
Aloha 634. Close to the guest laundry and the elevators, but far enough away so you could not hear any of the associated noise. It was directly across the from the crew elevators and was noisy on luggage days. They even had to put special padding up around the door to reduce the banging on the walls.

Closet space adequate -but not really a closet - hanger bar in the hallway/bathroom way too small, minimal storage space, no wand shower head and shower stall horribly tiny/cabin almost too small for two people - someone was always stepping aside/quiet location/no comfortable chairs/no FOX news/tired mattress-needed replacing badly/good location/ok sized balcony/

Cabin R606

I cruised alone & shared cabin R606 with no one hence the room was adequate for 1 person; do not know about 2. I was rather surprised at the room of the closet; the availability to store luggage. The balcony was nice but unusable for most of the trip. I like the ability to see my suroundings versus and inside cabin. All in all, I was happy with the cabin & did not have any complaints of those with aft cabins. Cabin R606 is more or less in the center of the ship. A suggestion for those people that cruise with a weak stomach is to choose a cabin in the center of the ship as low a deck as you can get. This information comes from a British lad who spent many years with the British Merchant Marine.

Cabin A430
Balcony Cabin - BC - A430 - very nice. Great walk-in closets. Layout was nice. Flat screen TV was set good so two people can see without one of them getting a crick in their neck :) Small balcony but nice.

Cabin R611
Our cabin was a nice size; not too small or cramped. There was plenty of room to walk around the bed and it was designed so that the desk and refrigerator were beside the bed rather than at the foot of the bed. The beds were put together to make a queen size. We had a desk, refrigerator and one chair. The balcony had two chairs and a small round table. The shower was extremely small. Towels were quite rough. It would have been nice if Princess had designed the room so that the bed would be facing the balcony and you could see the ocean or island if docked while lying in bed.

Cabin R608
We liked our room! The location really worked for us. We liked the way our balcony was shaded by the horizon court buffet, such that it didn't get too much sun (others might feel the opposite about this). We also liked being able to take the stairs to the pool decks instead of having to wait for the elevator. I was impressed at how much storage there was in a small amount of space.
